On Wednesday June 12, we again paddled a marvelous Delmarva kayaking destination: the Wye East River near Wye Mills, MD. Launching from Wye Landing we immediately saw an almost comical abundance of river and marsh wildlife, immature bald eagles, mature bald eagles, osprey, blue herons, cormorants, and even red fox. It seemed like every 10 feet a bird flew from a tree next to us. All of this activity was crowned by the extensive and large heron rookery toward the end of the river. Whoever was in charge of wildlife placement this day you have our congratulations for a job well done.
We have posted on the Wye East River several times already and links to those blogs may be found in our Blog Index. In summary, this paddling destination is easy to get to, has almost no boat traffic once you leave the boat ramp, and is jam packed full of wildlife. What’s not to like? Enjoy our photo blog.
